While there were no tickets issued yesterday (Monday September 12th) as a result of police observations of community safety zones, along school bus routes or at school crossings, this morning (Tuesday September 13th), the North Bay Police’s traffic enforcement officer issued a $490 ticket (includes victim surcharge and court costs) to a driver who failed to stop for a school bus on Trout Lake Road.

The North Bay Police Service’s Back to School Traffic Enforcement Campaign continues every weekday until Friday from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. when school-related traffic is at its peak. Drivers are reminded to STOP for the school bus in BOTH DIRECTIONS when its upper red lights are flashing, to REDUCE SPEED to 40 km/h in community safety zones and to WAIT for pedestrians, including school crossing guards, to completely cross the road before proceeding at school crossings.
